LaPorte CPAs & Business Advisors has been named as one of 35 accounting companies to watch for 2013 in Accounting Today’s ‘Beyond the Top 100 Accounting Firms’ list. This list is part of the annual ‘Top 100 Accounting Firms’ report compiled by Accounting Today.
The ‘Top 100 Accounting Firms’ survey and award program – now in its 26th year – is designed to identify, recognize and honor the top U. S. accounting firms in the industry, based on their net revenue, percentage of growth, number of professionals and services.
“LaPorte’s recognition, for the second year, as one of the rising leaders in the accounting industry is a testament to the continuing growth of our services and markets in the Gulf South,” states Ted Mason, president and CEO of LaPorte. In the past ten years, LaPorte has grown the firm and undertaken three mergers that have quadrupled the size of the staff and the firm’s revenue.
LaPorte is the only accounting firm in Louisiana to be selected as one of the ‘Beyond the Top 100: Accounting Firms to Watch’ for 2013. The rankings were published in conjunction with the March issue of Accounting Today.
In the same issue, LaPorte was also cited as a 2013 regional accounting leader among Gulf Coast firms. The Gulf Region led all other regions with an average growth rate of 10%. Leading regional firms were identified in 10 separate geographic areas.
LaPorte has been honored as one of Accounting Today’s ‘Best Place to Work for’ for the years 2008-2011. The firm has also been recognized by INSIDE Public Accounting as a Top 200 Accounting Firm for 2010-2012.
